GLIMPSES

Heaven remains a mystery--with the exception of a few brief glimpses
contained in The Word--and perhaps from those who have made brief visits.

On this earth though we have been given clues
Of what our Creator may have in store
As we cross that final divide
And enter into His presence

THE BEAUTY OF A FIELD FULL OF FLOWERS
WITH BEES BUZZING AMONG THE SWEET FRAGRANCE


THE DEEP DARK MYSTERY OF THE DEPTH OF A LAKE
AS WE SILENTLY GLIDE OVER THE STILL SURFACE




THE BRILLIANCE OF A SKY FILLED WITH A FLASH OF LIGHT
IN THE MIDST OF A SUMMER STORM


MOUNTAIN TOPS AND VALLEYS LOW
CREATED AGES AGO


THE SWEET WATER PULLED FROM A DEEP WELL
FED BY A SPRING WITH UNENDING SUPPLY



THE GLORY OF A SUNRISE
DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY


THE SWEET SONG OF THE BIRDS
TO BEGIN AND END OF EACH DAY




THE VASTNESS OF THE OCEAN
AND THE POWER OF THE WAVES


THE PROMISE OF TOMORROW
CONTAINED WITHIN EACH SUNSET


All---sweet reminders of what is yet to be
With a promise of so much better
And more than we could know
In the mansions of heaven

Everyday glimpses---of heaven's promise
When we gather in the presence
Of the radiance and beauty
At the feet of Jesus.



"In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.  You know the way to the place where I am going."

John 14:2-4

  1. Hi Lulu! Maybe that's why I love nature so much. I really enjoyed the images you posted along with your words. I always calm down, and get lost in the wonder of nature when I'm outside. I can't wait for the weather to get better!

    Blessings!

Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
